As former champ Helenius right now is moved to official challenger for EBU title. The fight probably will take place at the Sauerland's January. It was pretty much sure that Robert must make a warm up fight on 10 November in Finland, but it's possible that the fight will be moved back to 3-rd November on Marko Huck card.
Still noting official, but stay tuned in this legendary thread
Well if there's truth to this I suspect Pulev/Sauerland vacate the European title and allow Helenius a somewhat easy shot at taking that. Pulev has the IBF mandatory position now anyway so would have to vatate the European title to fight Wlad anyway.
